The job is hard. The managers are rubbish. The customers are agressive and no help from managers. Have to get to work early and finish late without getting paid. Unsociable hours not worth it for the money. They want you to manage on your own in evening which is dangerous!
Long hours and work weekends
Not the best workplace: -Terrible, rude moody customers. -Draconian employee policies. -Upper management putting customers before you while also penalising you for any and everything. -Cashiers do the same tasks the managers do, but get half the hourly wage. -Terrible hours/pay. -Managers abusing the rota policy and always scheduling themselves to finish work in the afternoon 6/7 days of the week while you ONLY work nights.
It's a job
Terrible work life balance. You'll only be working nights if you're not a manager.
Your basically thrown to the wolves no protection for staff managers don't care for your safety you work with thieves not adequate training given horrible place to work in
You get to have a cashier job on your CV
Mental health will be at stake

Having worked with another company within the industry I found that Paddy Power reward their staff better and also understand their customers needs.Agreat environment!
Professional dress code and up to date technology .well ahead of the game
Open early close late 7 days of the week
Bookmakers generally aren't the nicest place to work. They tend to be dirty and gloomy, the clients are generally rude aggressive and unhappy (as is the nature of the business) and you need to have an extremely thick skin. Not for the faint hearted. Management prioritise business over safety and mental health of staff. On the plus side, tips can boost your income, and the shift patterns for some are very desirable.
Generally an unpleasant enivronment
A company that is so overwhelmingly under staff that senior or more experienced members of staff often work by themselves in at times hostile environments. Will be often moved at last moment because of staff shortages. Not the most pleasant of working environments. The salary is very decent, very quick job to pick up and fellow workers are nice to work with.
The company are very fair and I go to work relaxed and ready for the day ahead! sometimes you are met with challenges but then that comes with any employment. Overall I’ve had the best experience and time with paddy power I am going into my 7th year with the company and can’t yet see myself going anywhere else.
Terrible place to work, this is a soul crushing job with terrible management. Managers will leave staff to struggle so they can be lazy.
Terrible place to work. Terrible management. I would 100% say do not work here. the stores are under staffed and ran by lazy managers. The managers are not the best at their job, Just the people who stayed in a bad job the longest. save yourself the waste of time. managers will work the rotas so they do all the easy shifts and leave people getting paid the least to work the busiest and hardest times/shifts.
The company its self is ok, the problem is the hrs you work. 20 hrs is done over 2 days. (no choice) They are not flexible. There hrs are set. U either finish at 6pm or finish at 10:30pm or by 2pm. Minimal hrs you can do a day 10 minus 1hr for lunch. They will not tell you this until you start the job and then you end up trapped ond overworked, you kids will suffer in the long run.
I dont mean to pour acid on the company but being consistently under staffed has messed everyone up,60-70 hour weeks have become the norm, if youre supposed to finish at 2 and the person relieving you calls on sick, you're expected to work all day. Its an easy job if you know about gambling and can deal with crackheads, otherwise dont bother
